Digital Bridge Deploys Licensed Back Haul to Support Wireless Broadband Network from ALTIUS Communications

WiMAX deployments planned throughout the country

ALTIUS Communications Phoenix, MD - April 23, 2008 - ALTIUS Communications is pleased to announce that Digital Bridge Communications has completed phase one of its licensed back haul network using equipment provided by ALTIUS.

Digital Bridge Ashburn, VA delivers reliable broadband connectivity to homes and small businesses with unprecedented simplicity, flexibility and dependability. Digital Bridge currently provides wireless broadband services in Indiana, South Dakota, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana and Virginia.

"Providing the best possible back haul network for our WiMAX equipment was always extremely important in our overall strategy" said Kelley Dunne, CEO of Digital Bridge. "DBC is about delivering a new type of broadband service that offers a richer feature set and is more dependable than DSL or cable modem service. For example, we provide portable connectivity throughout our regional service areas with the ease of a wireless desktop modem or laptop card. We realized early on that to reach our customer service goals we needed to start with a reliable connection to all of our WiMAX POP sites."

Jim Connor, President and CEO of ALTIUS Communications said "Digital Bridge wanted a robust licensed back haul network that was dependable and trouble free. After considering several vendors, we chose Ceragon Networks, Inc to provide 18 & 11 GHZ microwave radios for over 40 locations across the DDC terratory."

"Digital Bridge is all about reliable and affordable broadband connections to rural America" adds Mr. Dunne. "We knew we could count of ALTIUS Communications to bring us the most dependable back haul service to our customers."

"We looked at many different factors before deciding to partner with Ceragon" said Connor. "DBC needed to build a back haul network to support its WiMAX equipment that was capable of providing QOS, high bandwidth and allow us to work in a protected frequency band. We also required the equipment we chose to be able to grow with DBC’s current and future bandwidth requirements".
